Where're my books?

| 7 Comments

missingbooks.jpgI loan out books to everyone. With a few exceptions, I don't expect to get them back.

But over the last couple of months, every time I've gone to look for a specific one to loan, it's already gone. Tod asked last night "Do you know what happened to His Dark Materials?" Someone is enjoying it, I imagine, but I have no idea who it might be.

So now I'd like to figure out who has what, so I can engineer trades to get the books into different hands. It's like solving word problems. "If Friend A in Meguro wants to read book X which is currently held by Friend B in Kanagawa, how long will it take to get book X to Friend A?"

Do you have any books I loaned you? Which ones? Leave me a comment or drop me a mail...

I don't have any of your books, but I know the feeling of loaning (giving). At the moment though, I'm on a give-away-a-book spree, I can't get rid of them quick enough. I've been a hoarder for so long, and I'm keeping a selection, but I look at my books now and can only think of moving them again.

I have two that you wanted back when I finished reading that I haven't read yet, but I don't remember the names. They have very bright colored covers. I also have Tod's Mastering Regular Expressions book. Also I am working on a Japan Book exchange service (in the planning stages now) to help people accomplish exactly what you are trying to accomplish fairly automatically. If anyone cares to lend expertise, advice, or comments on this project feel free to contact me. (The contact form on my site will do just dandy if you don't know my e-mail address)

I have half your library. Bring the truck round.

I know that I have your javascript guide, the Philip Pullman series and a few others.

I thought I'd seen this in your blog already but maybe not. Have you heard of http://bookcrossing.com/ ?

I love books, and lend them without the hope of ever seeing them again. But i dont borrow books unless they are from a library. I have been meaning to change that habit and never got around to it. May i start with you? :-))
If you have any books on biographies, may i borrow from you?

I may have some of your books... I borrow from mj sometimes yours are in there, but im not sure... I always write my name and the year purchased in my books, not sure exactly why i write the year, but i always bought second hand books in Oz and i loved adding my name to the list of previous hands the book had been in.
